-american ministers, including the reverend jeremiah wright. the tape was obtained exclusively by the daily caller web site. but you are about to see it right here on "hannity" for first time. it contains some of the most divisive class warfare and racially charged rhetoric ever used by barack obama. portions of the nearly 40-minute speech can be found online in an edited video, shot by the daily press newspaper in hampton, virginia. however, that version runs only about 9 minutes and omits the most inflammatory comments. it also does not include any references to reverend wright. in addition, it was covered by other mediautelets, including the associated press and local television stations. but the most outrageous comments were completely ignored, further proof that the mainstream media has been in the pocket of barack obama since he day he arrived on the national stage. let's take a look at what the left-wing press has been hiding since 2007. we begin with senator obama, repeatedly praising the reverend reverend jeremiah wright, who was in the crowd. keep in mind, by the time the speech was delivere
, repeatedly praising the reverend reverend jeremiah wright, who was in the crowd. keep in mind, by the time the speech was delivered in june of 2007, reverend wright was a known quantity in the world of politics, dis-invited to barack obama's campaign announceility, and appeared in "hannity" months earlier, as he attempted to defend his controversial views. by the way, his last appearance on tv during that campaign. yet, here's what then-senator obama said about him then. >> then i have to give a special shoutout to my pastor... the guy who puts up with me, counsels me, listens to my wife complain about me -- [chuckles] ... he's a friend and a great leader, not just in chicago but across the country. please, everybody, give an extraordinary welcome to my pastor, dr. reverend jeremiah wright. [applause] >> where's he at? there he is. that's him. that's him right there. you are wearing a suit today. >> sean: it gets even worse, as candidate obama injects a dose of heavily racially-charged rhetoric, speaking about hurricane katrina and claims that the victims of the storm were ignored by the g
shout-outs, for example, to reverend jeremiah wright, some other small nuggets that the daily caller thought were exclusive. >> tell you what, i want you to highlight the jeremiah wright issue as well because there were some serious comments made about the reverend jeremiah wright, and when you say shout-out, it was a heck of a shout-out. i mean, my friend, my colleague, my mentor, my -- all sorts of lawedible comments about jeremiah wright, and then the next year, no more jeremiah wright. >> right. yeah, well, also, remember that when he was making that shout-out to jeremiah wright, it wasn't until sometime much later that jeremiah wright really became an issuend sort of blew up and was heavily covered in the media. now, to be honest with you, some democratic strategists will conclude and have said, this isn't that flattering to then senator obama, having his words like this dissected, not flattering at all, but as a political matter, the sense among democrats i've talked to is they believe this is not likely to have that big an impact on the obama campaign, and one strategist said
, then senator obama, praising his controversial pastor reverend jeremiah wright. this was just three months after he cancelled him from giving a prayer in his 2007 presidential announcement. >> i have to give a special shoutout to my pastor, the guy who puts up with me, counsels me, listens to my wife complain about me... he's a friend and a great leader, not just -- [overlapping dialogue] >> please, everybody, give an extraordinary welcome to my pastor, dr. reverend jeremiah wright jr. where's he at? there he is. that's -- that's him. that's him right there. >> greta: now, with this newly surfaced complete video have any impact on the race? former speaker of the house is here, newt gingrich. >> good to be with you. >> greta: i am curious whether you think the complete tapeville any impact whatsoever on the race? >> oh, i think it has some impact. it's a little bit like joe biden saying, they want to put you back in chains. it's a reminder of the depth of dishonesty, the appeals to racism, the factual false hoods that are at the heart of the modern left. what then senator obama said was fac
with jeremiah wright and connection with obama and his camp said i don't see this as news worthy and had absolutely nothing to do with it. kind of be surprised if they would go there. >> in the news cycle until 9:00 tonight when the debate gets rolling. >>> voters in pennsylvania will not have to show a photo id before casting their presidential ballot next month. a judge has put a temporary hold on the state's new law. abc's t.j. winick explains. >> reporter: 93-year-old vivian applewhite cast her first vote for president back in 1932 for franklin roosevelt. but because she didn't have the required documents to obtain a photo i.d. she almost didn't have a chance to vote this november. it turns out applewhite will be able to vote after a judge blocked pennsylvania's controversial new voter i.d. law from taking full effect before the presidential election. >> at the end of the day this is a victory for democrats because they can argue that no longer would the kind of voters that they want to bring to the polls are encouraged to go to the polls will be turned away. at the same time, for re
to a largely black crowd. but, again, after that jeremiah wright situation, the big controversy of his campaign came out and gave a widely praised speech in philadelphia that called for racial reconciliation. he said, look, as a country we have not gotten the issue of race relations right and called for unity and distanced himself from jeremiah wright. officially. so it's complicated as always. >> highly sensitive. >>> the hunt is on along the u.s./mexico border for those responsible for the death of an american border patrol agent. 30-year-old nicholas ivy was killed early yesterday in what is being described as an ambush. another agent was also wounded in the attack. what's unclear is weather ivy's death was the work of one of mexico's drug cartels. he was killed in an area that is notorious for drug trafficking. >>> at least eight wildfires are burning in northwestern minnesota this morning. onditions. one fire is finally under control after destroying about a half dozen homes in the town of carlshead. it burned through 12 square miles and forced the evacuation of half of the houston, includ
, will this be an issue in tonight's debate. the jeremiah wright was a racially tinged scandal, led the president to give the speech in philadelphia, widely hailed, race is a comb mrx issue in the country always has been. we have yet to perfect and come to terms with yet. here we are again. we'll see if this has -- an impact. whose base it may rile up or not rile up. >> yeah, a lot of people are questioning whether or not it is news. this was a covered speech. but according to some even within the abc family, they said at the time, the campaign only put out prepared remarks in a prepared newspaper, posted a nine-minute edited version. abc and networks, was based on prepared remarks, not really what was said at the podium. definitely aster that i'm sure many outlets will be following. >> going to get some attention for sure. a lot going on in politics. that brings us to our facebook question of the day today. >> yep. we want to know what are you hoping to hear from the candidates in to night's debate. log on to our facebook page, wnnfans.com. make sure you weigh in. got to hear your voice. >> be sure to t
the clip about where he praised jeremiah wright. and now the difference of the response of hurricane katrina to hurricane andrew. >> down in new orleans, there is a federal law called the stafford act. the local government has to give a match. here is the thing. when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waved the stafford act. forget that dollar you have to put in. here is $10. and that was the right thing to do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, they said look at this devastation, don't expect you to put that money in. what's happening in new orleans? where is your dollar, where is your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the but let hasn't been taken out. tells me that somehow the people in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> president obama, that was five years ago. decide for yourself whether this shows a side of barack obama never been seen before as the daily caller suggestsor nothing new. the president seems to be speaking at a difference cadence and a different kind of voice than he does in other speeches. decide the same thing about this. the conte
features obama extolling his then-reverend, jeremiah wright. >> a guy who puts up with me, counsels me, listens to my wife complain about me. he's a friend and a great leader. >> reporter: the obama campaign points out that throughout 2007, then-senator obama spoke out quite a bit about gulf coast states and disaster relief. and that's true, george. although, he did speak about it a little differently in the senate. george? >> jake, thanks. >>> let's add in david muir, already inside the debate hall. and political contributor, matthew dowd here with me. unlikely mitt romney is going to bring up this tape tonight. but the governor is behind nationally. and especially in the key battleground states. do they think they have to shake things up tonight? >> reporter: they absolutely do, george. i talked to a half-dozen advisers over the last 24 hours, and they all agree, he has to establish three things here on the stage behind me. he has to offer a blistering critique of the president. the second thing, though, is criticism within his own party that he needs to offer more details. forward-l
jeremiah wright who was the obamas' pastor in chicago and became a lightning rod in the 2008 campaign when it was revealed he said the u.s. brought the 9/11 attacks upon itself among other comments. at this event then-senator obama expressed pride in reverend wright. >> i've got to give a special shout out to my pastor, the guy who puts up with me, counsels me, listens to my wife complain about me -- [laughter] he's a friend and a great leader. >> reporter: the obama campaign calls this 2007 video a distraction and is accusing allies of mitt romney of recirculating clips of a 2007 event that was open to the press. >> desperate attempt to change the subject from a video in which mitt romney wrote off half of the american people are circulating a video that was covered by the campaign press corps at that time. >> reporter: the speech was june 2007, more than six months before the iowa caucuses. at that point be then-senator obama was considered a long shot, now it's getting some attention. megyn? megyn: mike emanuel, thank you. so what impact, if any, will this video have on the campaign? ch
then was senator obama's praise for his controversial pastor jeremiah wright. the additional comments what about he called disparity in the way new orleans got federal assistance after katrina and his charge that that was because of race. >> there is a law, federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government called the stafford act. basically it says when you get federal money you have to give a 10% match, local government has to come up with 10%. every $10 federal government comes up with, local government has to give $1. now here is the thing. when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the stafford act and said this is too serious a problemch we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. forget that dollar you have to put in. here is $10. that was the right thing to d do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said look at this devastation. we don't expect you to come up with your own money here. here is the money to rebuild. we're in the going to wait for you to scratch it together. because you're part of american family. what is happening in new orlea
's infactuation with reverend jeremiah wright. >> roy watkins, is there significanceo this, do you believe? >> i think there's no material significance here, but the republicans are very good at taking nothing and turning it into what appears to be something. we have to remember we live in a country that has forever been poise upped by the psychological disease of racism. and it doesn't take much to spark that back up. if you look at what president obama is saying, of course white politicians wouldn't say what he's saying because african-americans have a unique history in this country. we have a history of documented discrimination that is, in fact, undeniable. so when you look at what happened to katrina, anybody in their right mind would say, yes, there's some disparity there and any president, white or black, should note the disparity, not as a criticism on the greatness of america but really as an opportunity for our country to get a little bit better. >> i don't think that's what president obama was doing. >> go ahead, erick. >> he's telling a black crowd, he uses the phrase regarding hurri
, if there was a moment the whole jeremiah wright association and all this racial stuff that's there, if there was a moment that that was going to hurt and sink barack obama politically, it was april of 2008. there was a serious crisis in barack obama's campaign. he delivered a speech on race, a speech to be remembered for years to come and that put the issue to rest for 70%, 80% of the public. but there's this sliver of the public on the right still living in april of 200. it's a real problem for the republican party. when you're a month away from the election and your candidate is losing and this is what you're counting on as the big bombshell, you're out of touch with where the rest of the country is. >> right. jimmy, republicans don't have a lot going for them right now, but they seized on a recent comment by joe biden, who else, who said the middle class has been buried. i wonder if they've overestimated the importance of this statement. take a listen. >> those happens to be the words of the distinguished vice president of the united states, mr. joe biden. no, don't boo. he's th
of a job. >> stephanie: jeremiah wright is like his binky. >> on the eve of the first presidential debate, a bombshell is about to be dropped on the 2012 race for the white house because tonight you'll hear from barack obama like you have never heard from him before. a video has been uncovered from a campaign event in 2007. candidate obama speaking before an audience of african-american ministers including the reverend jeremiah wright. >> what! >> shocking! >> his christian ministry -- the christian church he used to go to the christian church area of chicago. the christian church? >> stephanie: birthday party no one shows up. he has one little deflated balloon. [ wah wah ] [ crickets chirping ] >> suburban people like sean hannity get a little weirded out when people don't sit there so quietly in church like everybody in his church does. >> that's not how you do it. aren't we supposed to sit here and protect. >> stephanie: you're acting so black. bill o'reilly on romney. >> romney's got this -- got to put aside his
his former pastor, the reverend jeremiah wright. did it make you feel squeamish? what did you think when all of a sudden we're hearing about reverend wright? >> no. look. that's an issue that was litigated and talked about very specifically for a good period of time during the '08 cycle. so i think the american people have made up their minds of who president obama is, what kind of ideas he has about what our country is and where he wants to take it. so i don't think that people will want to relitigate that. the notion that mitt romney's campaign had nothing to do with this i find lacking credibility. when you consider the closeness that matt drudge has to the romney campaign, it's hard to imagine a scenario where there was not some sort of conversation or collusion or even the handoff of the video which is five years old to matt drudge knowing that many people in the media would be led around by matt drudge and cover something they'd already covered five years ago. >> just to be precise, the daily caller website is the one that posted the video, that's tucker carlson's website. it
of radicalism in his speech about jeremiah wright. if you look carefully at that speech. it is different than martin luther king jr.'s take on rice in america. barack obama never mentions abraham lincoln and never created all men -- all men are created equal. those are absent from the speech. >> it is a deplate point and you look at the great society now people look at welfare and entitlement system and how had the great society fail . and failed to provide the safety net and are we in a nation where we are experience 50-50 environment. >> that's right. >> half of the country is supporting the other half of the country. is that who we want to be? >> liberalism had an impatience and hostility to the american congressional system, the olderaxoms and principles of the american public. that is a polar working its way out. we are seeing living hosstillity with the constitution and still the legal constitution. it is hard to bridge a gap that is a century old and has been certainly for the past generation deepening. >> which way are we going. i think conservatives is the horse to bet on in the long
on the reverend jeremiah wright who himself made numerous racially incendiary speeches. any fallout from that or is that old news too? >> clearly obviously the campaign is going to suggest that it's old news and, you know, what he said there, and also the tone in which he speaks and the cadence and his accent and everything is clearly something very different from what ever hear out of the rose garden or anything like that. also words he has about reverend wright are exact opposite what says a year later when he denounces the church and leaves his church there. gregg: right. >> i think that it's that sort of disonance what we hear one place and what we hear in another, way he speaks in one place and speak in another, that could be very disconcert fog are a lot of people who got behind him because he was not going to sort of be this divisive figure. gregg: now, charlie, there's another clip. this is from yesterday and this is vice president joe biden, and he basically admits in front of this audience and television cameras that the middle class has been buried under the last four years. o
